Treasures from the Barber Institute of Fine Arts
The Wallace Collection, London
To mark Lady Barber’s reference to the Wallace Collection as a benchmark of quality for the Barber’s own collections, key items of sculpture and decorative arts from the Barber will be displayed there.
Objects will include an ancient Greek helmet, a 14th-century French ivory casket, and the Butleigh Salt – each of which relates to objects at the Wallace.
The display will complement the Birth of a Collection exhibition at the National Gallery and explore and enhance links between the Barber and the Wallace and their respective collections.
